Wow, thank you to all the instructables admins for picking my project and for all the people who + ranked me. This is an amazing place to be, here with the top 12. To have my project next to the Extreme Business Card and The Ghetto Matrix by GRL is so satisfying. These are the kinds of people I've been admiring for so long.
For all you having a hard time picking your favorite, I can totally agree, there are so many good projects!
